Back to School the Safe Way during a Pandemic

As the world continues to learn to live with the pandemic, consumer and technology companies are coming out with solutions to help us cope and stay safe. Around the world, schools are planning a historic ‘Back to School’ after months of wait.

Apart from social distancing, mask wearing, hand hygiene and widespread vaccination campaigns two major areas of improvement are sanitisation and ventilation.

One of the common practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to reduce the number of people in a room which yield good results, given that the virus spreads more indoors than outdoors. So the lower the viral concentration, the lesser the chances of infection. If rooms are ventilated or indoor air is purified, better results can be obtained.

People around the world are looking for ways to achieve the best air quality to keep everyone as safe as possible – air purification is a boon. There are many solutions available to upgrade HVAC systems to get better quality air with less concentration of virus and microbes. However, this may invite a bigger investment. An easier and cost-effective solution is using an air purifier with HEPA filter which filters microbes. That’s where Philips Air Purifiers comes in. 

These effective air purifiers are recommended as a solution to provide cleaner air in indoor environments where schools operate with students and teachers in a confined space. A number of models are available depending on the room size and other conditions. Filters are easily replaceable when the machine gives an indication.

Another great solution from Philips is the UV-C disinfection desk lamp. As a renowned and specialised consumer brand, Philips has 35 years of experience in UV-C disinfection solutions meeting all safety standards. Philips UV-C disinfection desk lamp can be used for surface disinfection in various situations liked disinfecting tiffin carriers, bags, books, class room furniture after school time and more. This machine is equipped with a voice alarm and motion sensors and does the job in 15 to 45 minutes.

Though the pandemic has shaken the world and presented it with a host of challenges, it taught us how to deal with these challenges with a scientific and human approach. It also highlighted the undeniable need for learning and educational institutes.

Philips solutions helps schools, and families, to welcome this ‘Back to school’ without fear and anxiety, but rather confidence.
